Report that explores health IT purchasing behaviors by hospital tax status is also released

The Dorenfest Institute for Health Information, managed by the HIMSS Foundation, has made available its 2012 year-end HIMSS Analytics Database. The “HIMSS Analytics Database,” 2012 edition covers IT use on about 5,400 U.S. hospitals and 26,000 ambulatory facilities that are associated with these hospitals. The release expands the current library of databases available through the Dorenfest Institute; data is presently available from 1986 through 2012.

In addition to the 2012 year end database, HIMSS Analytics released two research reports to the Dorenfest Institute, including a special report analyzing the healthcare information technology buying behaviors of hospitals based on the hospital’s tax status.

The report “Hospital Tax Status and HIT Buying Patterns” leverages the Dorenfest Institute databases for the years 2010 – 2012, and the 2013 year-end HIMSS Analytics Database to analyze the health IT acquisition and implementation patterns of U.S. hospitals. These databases contain the annual health IT inventory and buying plans of all U.S. hospitals related to 100-plus health IT applications monitored by HIMSS Analytics. Evidence from this study reveals that health IT buying behaviors do vary by hospital tax.

The “2013 Annual Report of the U.S. Hospital IT Market,” is also now available. Using trended data from 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, the report examines technology use at nearly 4,300 U.S. hospitals.  Topics examined in the report include capital and operating budgets, as well as the use of key financial and clinical technologies in place at these hospitals. The data is from HIMSS Analytics Database.
